20 More Of The Dirtiest Rap Songs Ever Made

20 More Of The Dirtiest Rap Songs Ever Made
Rap IS the gift that keeps giving. Why? Well, for every rap song not filled with filth, there are numerous others that are. A previous list, 20 Dirty Rap Songs, just couldn’t do justice all by itself for all the dirty, risqué songs within the hip-hop hemisphere. So, here are 20 More of the dirtiest rap songs!

1) Khia, “My Neck, My Back (Lick It)”

from Thug Misses (2002)

An omission from the original list, Khia’s “My Neck, My Back (Lick It)” makes Missy Elliott’s “Work It” sound angelic. “My neck, my back / lick my p***y and my crack,” Khia spits on the cringe-worthy hook. It gets w...

20 Of The Dirtiest Rap Songs
Historically, hip-hop has no shortage of raunchiness. For years, hip-hop artists have pushed the boundaries, never being shy about spitting about a 'three-letter word’ – sex, that is. No need to blush yet – that’s what the list of 20 of the dirtiest rap songs is for! The list doesn't include every filthy rap track, but there's definitely a wealth featured in no particular order.

#1 Missy Elliott, "Work It"

from Under Construction (2002)

"Work It" is a crowning achievement for the critically acclaimed Missy Elliott. As addictive and revered as it is, "Work It" is equally risqué, ...

ABC's 'Rising Star' Mediocre At Best

June 23rd, 2014 11:15am EDT
Rising Star
"You win some, you lose some." Perhaps that’s how ABC should view their latest flawed effort joining the singing competition market, Rising Star. It's the latest attempt at finding a 'superstar' – or perhaps it’s just ABC striving to compete with other networks in the karaoke realm. After all, NBC has The Voice and Fox has American Idol. Adding fuel to the fire, ABC has fallen flat previously – Duets ended after one season.

Rising Star has good intentions – the viewers select the artists vying for a recording contract with Capitol records. The idea sounded great decent on paper… If t...

10 Stars & Their Reasonably Priced Cars

10 Stars & Their Reasonably Priced Cars
We know that a lot of Hollywood celebs just love to flaunt their wealth - and a lot of the time this comes in the shape of very expensive automobiles. Some celebrities though, don't feel the need to buy an expensive automobile to just display their status.

A lot of celebrities, automotively-speakings, are a lot like me and you - they have cars that they just use as transport pieces - a reliable, economic way to get from point A to B. We respect that kind of frugality - and today we pay homage to the stars that drive reasonably priced cars. Who knows? Maybe you drive the same car as one of ...

5 Big-Time Rappers Whose Stock Needs A Lift

April 29th, 2014 10:30pm EDT
50 Cent
Sometimes artists go through a dry spell. In rap in particular, hotness just doesn’t last forever. I mean, wouldn’t LL Cool J still be a hot commodity commercially if that were the case (no shade LL, no shade)? Here, I have identified five big-time rappers who need good things to happen for them in the near-future/future. One or two names may be surprising, but there is a rationale for all five. Hear a bro out!

T.I.

Reason for being here: Inconsistent albums in the 10s; ‘less fire’ where rhymes are concerned

Man, how I hate to put T.I. on this list. The ATL MC is one of my favorites,...

'Black Panties' Review: R. Kelly Sounds Exceptional Vocally But Goes Overboard Sensually

December 10th, 2013 11:30am EST
R.Kelly Black Panties
R. Kelly sounds exceptionally vocally on Black Panties, goes overboard sensually.

R. Kelly has a compelling argument for the title of the “King of R&B”, easily.  For years and years, the sensually driven R&B singer has captivated audiences with his R- (and sometimes X-) rated brand of contemporary soul, ultimately epitomizing the urban sound.  Like many of his contemporaries and other artists he’s influenced, Kelly’s sales have taken a tumble from their glory days – the plight that is R&B music these days. Kelly’s previous two albums consisted of brand new material, but found the singer r...

The fact that I'm even writing this review speaks to the quality of the Fast Five soundtrack. It dropped last week (May 3), but I've enjoyed listening to it so much that I wanted to feature it anyway.

If you've listened to the soundtracks that were put out for The Fast and the Furious series previously, you know what to expect with this one. Particularly if you're familiar with the album for Fast & Furious - this CD has the same Latin sound as that one, even with some of the same artists. Fast Five is a superior album, ...
